A short time after starting the hike, you can see the Strotzbüscher Mill. The trail runs far away from the main roads through the middle of the Siebenbach valley to the Oberscheidweiler mill, which lies directly on the Alfbach stream. The trail leads upwards along natural paths and asphalted trails to Mückeln. Past the idyllic monastery pond, the trail leads to the Schutzalf memorial. From there, the trail runs along the Diefenbach stream to the Immerath Maar. Pass the Immerather mill and return to Strotzbüsch.

Super toller Weg, auch aufgrund der Länge. Absolut ruhig gelegen, kein Verkehrslärm ( bis auf ganz wenig Ausnahmen), kein Asphalt, viele Pfade, Abwechslung, ausreichend Bänke, sehr gute Ausschilderung. Natur pur ohne Menschen. Habe niemanden getroffen. Die Tour lässt sich 2 Stellen auf 17 km verkürzen.

Ein toller Weg, der es aber auch in sich hat! Enge Täler, weite Höhen - alles ist dabei! In der Hauptvegetationszeit ein wunderbares Erlebnis!

Entlang des Uesbach ist der Weg sehr schön. Sonst führt er überwiegend über land- und forstwirtschaftliche Nutzwege und bietet auch landschaftlich nicht sehr viel. Leider enttäuschend. Für den Uesbach und die sehr gute Beschilderung 2 Punkt.
